    Is or Are?

    If someone says the following:

    "My clothes buying issue is that i don't buy the clothes. I pay for them but the rest of the buying process (socks incl. if they are and issue;) is what girls are for."

    Would the "is" in "is what girls are for" actually be is or should you use are? Or could both be used?

    Thanks :)

    Re: Is or Are?

    The subject for the verb "is" in that clause is "the rest of the buying process." That would take the singular verb, so "is" is correct.
